The Force is strong with these avocado pops.

Avocado Fudgesicles

Ingredients

  • 6 dates (pits removed)

  • 3/4 cup water

  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted

  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder

  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup

  • 1 cup canned coconut milk (or other non-dairy milk)

  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut (optional)

Instructions

  1. Soak the dates for about 30 minutes in the 3/4 cup water until they soften a bit (to make them easier to blend). Then add in the remaining ingredients and blend! Blend it until its smooth and creamy.

  2. Amazingly, this can be eaten as a delicious pudding at this stage! Or, if you want to go all the way and make them into fudgesicles, you can spoon it into your popsicle molds. Freeze overnight.

  3. The next day--they are ready to be enjoyed! It helps to run the molds under hot water--the fudgesicles will come out smoother.

- In honor of Star Wars' opening weekend, let's make Light Saber Avocado Fudgsicles. Well you can't make Light Saber Avocado Fudgsicles without your Hoth jacket on right? So, check, got that covered. Now on the the fudgsicles. So you want two avocados, and you just wanna scoop that delicious avocado goodness right in the blender. All right, and we've got some dates which we have soaked in water to make them softer and easier to blend. So you can put the dates and their water that they've been soaking in right in the blender. We've got some maple syrup, give it that sweetness. Cocoa powder and coconut milk. I mean, really, these are pretty darn healthy for a fudgsicle, am I right? And then, totally optional, but I like to add coconut flakes, I think it's really fun when you find coconut flakes in the fudgsicle as you're eating it, so I'm gonna add those right in. This is the easiest recipe because you just throw all of this in a blender or food processor, and basically your job's done so let's blend. All right, it looks great, well incorporated and now we just put them in our fudgsicle-- I mean light saber molds. Also, side note, this as it is right now is a delicious pudding, so you don't even have to freeze it to enjoy it, but it's gonna become a baller fudgsicle. Fill this up most of the way, but don't fill it up quite to the tippy top because when you put in the stick it's gonna take up some space and you don't want it to overflow. So now we put in our sticks, and pop them in the freezer overnight. Now that they're ready, all you need to decide is, are you going to be a Jedi or join the dark side? Meh.
